PAGE STAR Mails Names of Winners to Sponsors Only
- The PAGE STAR office mails the names of the high school winners and system winners to local sponsors only.
- Certificates and list of Region Recognitions are included in this mailing to sponsors.
- Local sponsors contact high schools to set their local recognitions and announce STAR winners to the news media and community.
- Should a school need to announce the winner earlier than scheduled (example: Awards Day), the school should contact the sponsor and arrange details.
- January 21 is the earliest possible date because of time necessary to verify, process and print nominations and mail the results to sponsors.
January 27 – February 28, 2014 - Local Recognitions
Local recognitions should be held between January 27 and February 28.
February 28 is the last possible date to hold local recognitions because of lead time needed for region chairs to organize region recognitions.
March 3 – March 28, 2014 - Region Recognitions
Region recognitions should be held between March 3 and March 28.
March 28 is the last possible date to allow time for region winners to file biographical data required by the judges for the state competition.
